Dr. Hilton Becker is recognized as a world expert in breast lift surgery. He has published several articles as well as written chapters in plastic surgery textbooks on breast lift surgery.
Dr. Becker is the pioneer of the “Scarless” breast lift procedure also known as the Sub–areolar mastopexy, which is an improved variation of the Circum-areolar mastopexy. In this procedure an incision is made around the areola. By using buried tension releasing sutures scarring is minimized. He has published two articles on the subject.
Internal mesh Breast lift
This video shows how an external tape is effective in elevating the breast.
Surgical mesh is placed in a similar fashion within the breast to lift the breast tissue with minimal scarring in the “Scarless Breast Lift” procedure developed by Dr. Hilton Becker.
Absorbable surgical mesh placed during surgery to lift the breast.
Dr. Becker has been invited by his colleagues around the world to lecture and teach his techniques in breast lift surgery. He has performed thousands of breast procedures over his 25 year experience.
The breast lift procedure may be performed with Dr. Becker’s adjustable breast implants or the New Natural Profile – Cohesive Silicone Gel Implants. Enhanced lift and projection is achieved with an internal mesh bra that Dr. Becker has developed.

Mastopexy (Breast Lift)
Traditional Mastopexy (anchor incision)
One of the major concerns of a patient undergoing breast lift surgery is the resultant scars. Traditionally, breast lift surgery was performed using an anchor incision, which included a scar around the areola, a vertical scar and a horizontal scar at the bottom of the breast.
Recently, the vertical mastopexy has come into vogue. With this procedure, the horizontal scar under the breast is eliminated, leaving only a vertical scar.
The Doughnut Mastopexy
The doughnut mastopexy eliminates both the vertical and horizontal scars; leaving the circular scar around the areola. Unfortunately with this technique, the scar around the areola can become stretched and visible. Puckering of the skin around the scar can also be problematic.
Sub-areola Mastopexy (“Invisible scar” breast lift)
Dr. Becker has developed a new technique called the sub-areola mastopexy. This technique enables a breast lift to be performed with virtually no scarring. The sub-areola mastopexy also results in less tension at the suture site. The scars are often barely noticeable.
Pioneer in the field
Dr. Becker is the pioneer of the sub-areola mastopexy technique. He serves as an instructor and teaches these techniques to other doctors around the United States and the world. Dr. Becker has also written numerous articles and plastic surgery textbook chapters on this topic, including:
- The dermal overlap sub areola mastopexy: A preliminary report. Aesthetic Surgery, September/October 2001.
- The correction of breast ptosis with the expander mammary prosthesis. Annals of Plastic Surgery, Vol. 24, No. 6, June 1990.
- Sub areola Mastopexy: Update. Aesthetic Surgery Journal, September/October 2003.
